Guides and Resources
There's a lot that goes into signage. There's graphic design, industrial design and engineering, manufacturing, and installation. These are all pretty in depth and confusing processes, so we've put together this section of the website to give you some helpful pointers on the various aspects of signage. Otherwise, we're more than happy to take care of everything for you; after all, we do offer signage design, manufacturing and installation services!
There's an art to good signage installation.
While some signs might just look like an easy 'lick and stick', there's more to signage installs than meets the eye. After all, you don't want bubbles or dust in your vinyl decals, or your signs to be installed at the incorrect height and alignment. Statutory signs required for compliance purposes can also come with restrictions on how and where they're installed. Then there's all of the engineering requirements of big, illuminated building signs and pylons. It's simply not worth risking your install.
MPL Signage has a range of installation services, ranging from the very big to the very small
We can arrange installations for single, one-off signs, to projects, rollouts and fitouts located in Victoria (including any necessary permits, DBYDs, access, and traffic management where needed). These installations are coordinated by your dedicated project manager following a pre-organised schedule and plan. Sign installations can be organised for the following works:
Residential construction projects
We can organise the manufacture and installation of all statutory sign components and apartment / unit numbering for residential construction projects. By liaising with the project architects, builders, and project managers, we can ensure that all signage is up to code for compliance purposes and custom designed to suit aesthetics of the property.
Refurbishment and upgrade projects
If you've got a building refurb or fitout to do, we can organise the signage component for these projects, regardless of whether the signage component consists just of a couple metres of safety strip, or an entire package. We will work around your other trades to make sure the signage is in by handover. Multiple site visits are always include in our pricing structure.
If you're managing a signage project on behalf of a builder or the end client, we are more than happy to assist with the manufacture and installation component, and design too if needed. Simply give us the schedule to work to and we'll make the process as easy as we can for you. We know how hard it can be to deal with multiple stakeholders, signoffs and changes, so the last thing you need is to have to worry about the signage.
Have you purchased signs or decals from our store, plan on installing them yourself, and have lost the printed instructions?
Not to worry!
We've put together guides here on our website on how to install signage for every type of product that we sell. These guides can be reached from the links at the top of the page, or from the Sign Installation dropdown menu.
